 Local Sewing
by Heidi Merrick
All our pieces are sewn within walking distance of the studio, if not in the studio.  This matters to me, first because I believe in community.  These are the people of my neighborhood.  Secondly, I like to have control over my label -it's my name, most people would be the same way.  And thirdly, I don't like shipping all over the world sewn into my customers price point.  Isn't it better to have a name and face to the people you are paying? I love knowing when I buy an Italian designer, it's made in Italy.  Shouldn't it be the same way for a California designer?

pssst.... we have this coat in store, plus many other Heidi gems. 
If you haven't already, come and see how fabulous they are.
